It's hard to believe, but the conclusion of the NFL football season is upon
us. In the east coast vs. west coast championship rivalry, Neotys will be
rooting for our own New England Patriots. It shouldn't come as a surprise, as
our office is only 35 miles from Gillette Stadium. Not only will the Patriots
take on the Seattle Seahawks in the big game, but many web-based companies
will be taking on large-scale traffic challenges after airing their prime
time commercials that day. After hearing this, you should ignore the pregame
hype, put down the nachos and get your servers ready for maxed out user load.
You've Visualized the Win... But Not the Loss
Imagine a scenario in which your company, after capping off a great 2014,

data engineers face when working with Big Data. He also shared how the

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may
be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more
intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and
that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in
Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data
center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly
on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Networks move data, but not all
networks are suitable for all data.

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore's Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers.
